Cool.  Basically the way to do it is to keep around a cached copy (be
sure to g_object_ref it) of the query model used when there is no
genre/artist/album/search query, in RBLibrarySource.  The tricky thing
is to check to make sure that the sorting hasn't changed, and if it has
you need to dump the cached copy and store a new one.

Yeah, that's something a smart playlist should be able to do.

Like if you drag a playlist icon from rb to nautilus or something?
